Here at The Honey Pop there’s nothing we love more than some indie-pop. Having played together since their school days, The Academic are sure to be your next obsession! Following in the footsteps of bands like Vampire Weekend, these indie pop princes have pulled it out the bag again.
“‘Anything Could Happen’ is a rallying cry to the people in our lives who find themselves stuck in the cycle of mundanity and monotony” – Craig Fitzgerald (lead singer)
High energy riffs underpin this punchy track that inspires The Academic’s fans to be kind to themselves and to take control of their futures. Obviously, it’s a message that couldn’t come at a better time since most of us are stuck in our homes.
As for their music video? According to Fitzgerald, they had to scrap all their plans due to travel restrictions. The outcome has resulted in a DIY video shot in the homes of the band along with fans sending in videos of themselves isolating with their partners. The video has given the song a new meaning and breath of life and we all think it just adds to the track’s charm.
Indie king Nick Hodgson is the man behind the production, so it’s no surprise that it slaps. With a message that’s inspiring along with that quintessential ‘indie’ sound, here at The Honey Pop we can’t wait to blast it loud in the sunshine!
